The Golden Paw Seal.

The Golden PAW certification recognizes that this course and instructor met the UNM Online Course Best Practices Review Standards. For more information please see our website.

Catalog Description

Fundamentals of biological anthropology and principles of organic evolution, in relation to the biology, ecology and behavior of primates and fossil humans. Biological anthropology concentrators are required, and others are encouraged, to enroll concurrently in 151L. Meets New Mexico Lower-Division General education Common Core Curriculum.

Detailed Course Description

What is evolution? How has evolution molded human biological and cultural diversity? What are the broader social and scientific implications of our evolutionary history? This class seeks answers to these enduring questions. The course is divided into four parts. We begin by examining Darwin’s ideas about natural selection and the challenges his ideas have faced over the past 150 years. The second section examines how evolution has shaped the anatomy and behavior of our closest living relatives, the non-human primates. The third part of the class is devoted to investigating the human fossil record and tracing the physical and behavioral evolution of our species over the past five million years. In the fourth section, we study the evolution of modern human behavior in greater depth, and we explore the broader social implications of our evolved behavior.

The course consists of 15 content modules. A broad course objective is associated with each module (see below). These objectives describe what the student will know or be able to do by the end of the course. Each module contains a list of its own objectives that will help the student work through weekly lectures, readings, and assignments.


Course Objectives: These objectives describe what the student will know or be able to do by the end of the course.
1. Identify scientific hypotheses, and distinguish between falsifiable hypotheses and non-scientific conjecture
2. Define the forces of evolution and explain their effects on levels of variation within and between populations
3. Use Mendel’s laws to predict offspring genotypes and phenotypes from parental genotypes and phenotypes
4. Generate amino acid sequences from DNA sequences
5. Define biological species, allopatric speciation, and adaptive radiation
6. Place prosimian, monkey and ape taxa on a phylogenetic tree, and list the derived traits associated with each taxon
7. Identify primate social structures and mating systems based on the degree of sexual dimorphism and the ecological setting
8. Define sexual selection and the four types of altruism
9. List the hypotheses for why primate brains are large compared to other mammal species
10. List the evolutionary advantages of bipedal locomotion, and list the features of the skull and postcranium that distinguish bipeds from quadrudepal apes
11. List the derived anatomical and behavioral traits of the genus Homo
12. List the derived anatomical and behavioral traits of Homo heidelbergensis and Neandertals, and explain the genetic, archaeological and behavioral evidence associated with each of the hypotheses about why Neandertals disappeared
13. List the derived anatomical and behavioral traits of Homo sapiens and explain where and when these features appeared
14. Distinguish between evolutionary and non-evolutionary hypotheses for the causes of variation in human mate choice, parenting, and cultural institutions
15. Explain why the structure of human genetic and phenotypic diversity is inconsistent with the existence of biological races, and describe the evolution of human culture

CLST 107.005 Greek Mythology

Catalog Description

Introduction to mythology; primary readings in stories about the gods and heroes, usually including Homer, Hesiod, Homeric Hymns and Tragedies. All texts will be in English.

Detailed Course Description

This introductory course will explore the representation, interpretation and influence of the classical Greek myths. We will consider how the gods and heroes function as objects of deep religious awe and reverence for the ancient Greeks, and yet at the same time how they are portrayed as colorful, unpredictable, subjectively “anthropomorphic” characters in the popular art and literature of classical antiquity. We will investigate how archetypal figures and narratives emerge in Greek mythology and how these patterns develop in different representational media and literary genres. We will ask how the Greek myths continue to influence our culture today. In our survey of the principal ancient myths, the primary emphasis will be on the myths as they are presented in classical Greek literature: readings will come from ancient poems, hymns and other writings. We will also view images taken from ancient Greek vase painting and sculpture, so that we may examine the representation of the gods, heroes and myths in their own contemporary visual and cultural context.

This course will consist of readings, slide lectures, and quizzes. Please refer to the schedule. Students are expected to prepare the entire assignment for each day as specified on the syllabus. Students are expected to take all quizzes.

LING 101.011 Introduction to the Study of Language

Catalog Description

Broad overview of the nature of language: language structure, biology of language, language learning, language and thought, bilingualism, social and regional variation and educational implications. Intended to fulfill breadth requirements in any college. LING 101 and ANTH 110 may not both be counted for credit.

Detailed Course Description

This course will introduce students to the basic tools linguists use to scientifically explore the structure of a language, and how to utilize those newly acquired tools to analyze various types of language data. Through this process, students will also learn to identify the difference between what it means to scientifically describe language as opposed to discussing it in terms of social judgments and attitudes. Students will investigate various components of a wide range of languages: the sounds and sound patterns, how words are built, how sentences are structured, and how meaning is created. Students will learn how to use linguistic tools to describe stages involved when children learn their first language(s), as well as how languages change. The class will consider how new languages and dialects develop and how they decline, leading to possible language endangerment. Finally, an overarching theme of the course will be to examine the role that languages and dialects play in constructing and maintaining social identities.

61387 SOC 101.013 3 Introduction to Sociology FA 17 Second Half Term: 10/16/2017 - 12/16/2017 Olson, Colin ARR ARR Online

SOC 101.013 Introduction to Sociology

Catalog Description

Basic concepts, topics and theories of contemporary sociology. Meets New Mexico Lower Division General Education Common Core Curriculum Area IV: Social/Behavioral Sciences (NMCCN 1113). Prerequisite for more advanced courses in sociology.

Detailed Course Description

This course will introduce the student to the basic concepts and theories of sociology and to the methods utilized in sociological research. The course will address how sociological concepts and theories can be utilized to analyze and interpret our social world. We will examine how profoundly our society and the groups to which we belong influence us. Students will be given the opportunity to challenge their “taken-for-granted” or “common sense” understandings about society, social institutions, and social issues. Special attention will be paid to the intimate connection between our personal lives and the larger structural features of social life. In addition, the implications of social inequality will be central to our examination of social life in the U.S.

Sociology 101 is an introductory course intended to promote a better understanding of the impact of the political, social, and economic environments on our individual lives. The goal of this course is not to give you an exhaustive survey of the field of sociology, but to introduce you to the sociological perspective. We focus on the social structure and how it constrains and enables us, shapes our preferences and tastes, and how we reproduce these structures unwittingly. It is my hope that with a sociological imagination you will be able to imagine these structures, study them dispassionately, and work toward building the world you envision.

Textbooks and Materials

No textbooks are required for this class. All course material will be made available through the online course.

How the course will be formatted: Each week you will need to log on to learn.unm.edu and click on the module (each module is three days long). Most modules are organized around a general introduction to the topic, a reading from the text, a discussion, and an essay assignment. That means, there will be a total of 9 assignments for the semester. You will not be going through a large chunk of the material in the text, but the instructor will be asking you to think carefully about the material you do cover.

This course is intended to provoke thought, not be encyclopedic. There will be no way to make up the assignments. The instructor gives you plenty of time to read and respond to the questions, but you will need to budget your time. The entire course is open to you to complete it at your own pace. Feel free to work at any pace you like, as long as you meet the due dates. However, the instructor will not necessarily grade the assignments ahead of the due dates.

On Reading and Writing: There is not a lot of reading but a fair bit of writing so some strategies for doing these things effectively will be useful. Don’t be overwhelmed by the amount of work for this course. The instructors goal for a class like this is to expose students to some of, not all of, the key concepts, theories, and topics in sociology. If you can demonstrate to the instructor that you are trying to understand these things you’ll do fine.

That said how should you tackle the writing?
First, reread the question and create an outline of it (if possible). This means thinking about the reading(s) in relation to the question and imagining what needs to be said before you do it. Your outline will evolve with your understanding of the material. From the outline work through it in your own words, but drawing on specific detains of the lecture. For the papers in this class do not seek outside sources from the Internet. Unacceptable sources are sites like Wikipedia. Unless the instructor asks you to, you should also refrain from editorializing in your papers. You should also be sure to proofread your work or, even better, have someone else do it for you. If your grammar gets in the way of your content it will hurt your grade. Make sure all of your responses are in paragraph form as well. Finally, be familiar with what plagiarism is and don’t do it. It might be tempting to try to find papers that have already been written about the topics you’re asked to write about and simply cut and paste someone’s text into your own document. Resist this temptation. The instructor cannot guarantee that you will get caught, but if you do, you will fail the class. Your answers to each assignment should be at least 500-750 words, except for the final exam, which is a little longer.

On submitting your work: all written work should be attached as a PDF or Word document.

Discussions: you will be asked to participate in discussion for each of the topics. These discussions are designed around the essays you will be asked to answer. The idea behind these discussions is to create a learning environment to facilitate the development of critical analysis. In other words, help each other out in figuring our what the assignments are asking of you. These are strategy sessions.
To summarize, you will need to (1) watch all the lectures, (2) do all assignments and submit your work through learn by the dates specified in the syllabus, and (3) participate in the module discussions. That is it. There will be no surprises, no timed quizzes; just due dates with a time to submit your work by.
